SharePoint Versions

With all of the patches, hotfixes and service packs coming out, its hard to keep track of your farm and it's patch level. It's also difficult to verify what version you should be at after applying patches, hotfixes and service packs. This goes along with another post that I had to show database version and database schema version. Here's the lists of patches and versions up to June:

You can go to your Central Administration Operations page and select Servers In Farm to pull your Farm and Server Versions, or you can use Powershell (if it's loaded) and run thi command on each server to pull the version:

(get-item "hklm:software\microsoft\shared tools\web server extensions\12.0").getvalue("version")

project cannot be opened in read-write mode because a previous checkin for this project is not complete

Problem
You try to open your project in the professional client, but you get a message box saying that the project is already checked out to you (or someone else).
This project cannot be opened in read-write mode because a previous checkin for this project is not complete.

Explanation
This sometimes occurs if:
  • You close the professional client window with the plan still open inside (by clicking on the x in the top right corner of the window).
  • The client closes before the check-in process is completed and the project stays checked out.
  • You shutdown the client via the task manager with a plan still open
  • You shutdown windows with a running MS Project session.
Resolution
This issue was first addressed with Service Pack 2, but because of the nature of how it is caused, the issue may still occur

Check in the Project Center of Project Web Access
  1. Navigate to Project Web Access
  2. From the Quick Launch Bar, select Project Center, under the Project heading
  3. From the Project Center Screen, change the view to Summary
  4. Scroll the project details to the right to verify Owner, Checked Out Status and Checked Out By information
If the check-out state is "yes", you can request for an administrator to perform a force check-in of your project

To do a force check-in:
  1. Navigate to Project Web Access
  2. From the Quick Launch Bar, select Project Center, under the Project heading
  3. From the Project Center Menu, select Go To
  4. From the drop down, select Check In My Projects
  5. Select the check box next to the project to force check-in and click the Check In button
  6. Give Project Server a couple of minutes to process the transaction before re-trying to open
If your project is not checked out or if you force check-in and continue to receive the error, you will need to clear your project cache:
  1. Start Microsoft Office Project 2007 Professional
  2. Logon to the Microsoft Office Project Server Account
  3. From the Tools menu, select Local Project Cache
  4. From the fly-out menu, select Cleanup Cache
  5. From the default Project Filter (Project not checked out to you) select, your project and click Remove From Cache
  6. If your project does not appear in the default filter, change the Project Filter to Projects checked out to you
  7. Select your project from the list and click Remove From Cache
  8. Click Close
  9. Restart Microsoft Office Project 2007 Professional and try to open your project again
